a surveillance and on the international humanitarian law may never be targets over an attack during unarmed conflict this was just the latest in a series of attacks on journalists working in eastern ukraine just two weeks ago army are telling me fire killed a russian correspondent on a sunday engineer while they were filming refugees outside the city of the gallants last month an italian photographer honest translator died in a mortar shelling a reporter for artie's video agency ruptly was severely wounded by soldiers in the city of mariupol in may it took several days to negotiate his return to moscow journalists are often detained without charge by government forces and correspondence from various russian news channels have been up or handed interrogated and even. the incident came at the time of a declare a truce in the east of the country president putin along with the leaders of germany and france has called on the ukrainian leader petro poroshenko to extend the ceasefire that expired at seven pm g.m.t.
today monday they held a phone conversation overnight artie's maria financial reports on how the truce has affected life in the embattled area. those we have been able to speak to here in the city of the girls going to three have been telling us that the rain relative calm this annoyed became more silent for the finally people now could leave but of course we continue here hearing about sporadic fire often resulted in fatalities including the months of human population we heard that the city hopes live rounds could be if the center of what key of calls it and to tell reparation repeatedly came under fire with a residential area attacked and a woman killed a church was also hate at the time when during mass was happening there and there were also a series of explosions at unarmed internets no soldiers were there at the time we've been hearing from ukrainian military repeatedly that their checkpoints were attacked by self-defense forces well we can say that unfortunately
whatever peace the reason in these parts of the country remains very very different job and of course people very tired they are exhausted of the situation of months of clashes and months of tensions many fled already the country with many stay here and who have been hearing from many of them that their plan is that in case of emergency in case of need they will use them shelters and we visited some of them and here's my report about that this is a bomb shelter watch out it was built decades ago when ukraine was part of the used to store at the height of the cold war and it seems these dog times are returning to these parts of the world the enemy may be different but these abandoned souls are now coming back to life. as they see if you want peace prepare for war the d.m. as a resident volunteered to clean up soviet era bunkers they could provide
a crucial defines against on the air raids and to refine he says we speak to the dean during what is supposed to be a cease fire there you go switch is why we're working here the infrastructure is destroyed so we're taking the most important first steps to fix it and allow people to shelter here. similar work is currently under way at many similar stores all over the city about one hundred bomb shelters already open. brazil is wrong rubrum of the world this is not only their fault on the river all of rather sure approachable and i just hope that there were about the last one more but the board there is a growth the government who are not a group is a loser but i must see. that i am in that bubble human longer reproachfully are far from up for me with their whether it be your priority at this program or in your mouth as a. group with come out of there for probably a minute there is also
a kitchenette with some basic food and cursed keats. bosom wasn't too good for suddenly we here was sounds like distant shooting thought as organization not permit thirty three more for doing it. for which in the us after which all but at least one you should have a keyboard. when with film vitalis daughter nasty stops by. she also heard what we did. but the sky was laid up with explosions when we were walking home three felt very and there were sirens and everyone started running away it was terrifying the same thing happened later that night this is fire expires in just a few hours time and no one can say for sure whether these long abandoned bomb shelters will be needed again grief notion r.t.
in lugansk eastern ukraine now the ceasefire has been breached again according to anti-government fighters they say the army has shelled the city of slovyansk while attempting to advance on the self defense positions there but one carbon tax once again hit residential areas reportedly injuring a girl and killing an unspecified number of people. i don't i just don't think when the shooting started i jumped when i was carrying it around to the leaders how do you do if you're close but i shouted so loudly that someone turned down and that when it was over i ran back like everybody else crying in panic this is outrageous what can we hope for. tomorrow how can you call this a ceasefire. you can see more dramatic images from new korean conflict on our website r.t. dot com. the u.s. has rushed a three day supply of hellfire missiles to the iraqi government in an attempt to
help the desperate authorities bottled jobless militants now the army is once again trying to regain control over the city all of to create here as extremists aim to capture of baghdad this comes after the radical islamic order and territories they captured both in iraq and syria the. whole contains economically vital oil sites and now the islamic state in iraq and syria is urging other extremist groups to pledge allegiance to the new state so the question does arise where does isis get the funding it needs to snatch power in the region it's thought the group powerful behind the scenes sponsors in the gulf states isis is also involved in smuggling extortion and bank robberies on in the course of its rapid advance on baghdad the group took control of stockpiles of u.s. made weaponry and even washington has played its role in the rise of isis as artie's marina portnoy explains. he was terrorist organization known as isis is
over taking out his brain as public enemy number one sunni islamic militants are unleashing brutality and bloodshed in iraq but its next door in syria during a three year civil war where the extremist group got its start we are where we are because we armed the syrian rebels we have been fighting alongside al-qaeda fighting alongside isis isis is now in bold and in two countries but here's the anomaly we're with isis in syria we're on the same sort of the war so those who want to get involved to stop isis in iraq are allied with isis in syria that is the real contradiction to this whole policy according to reports the u.s. government may have inadvertently played a direct role in strengthening extremists they're also allegations that the united states may have been involved in some of the training isis insurgents at a training camp in jordan so the saudis the qataris all those are directly
involved in this regime change policy in syria and in iraq and united states has helped and created these conditions and this will cause chaos an expanding war in the region according to german magazine der spiegel americans were still in jordan in march of last year training up to twelve hundred members of the free syrian army to use anti-tank weapon mary we have spent a lot of time trying to work with a moderate opposition in syria now the white house is ready to spend a lot of money the obama administration has requested half a billion dollars to arm and train syrian rebels fighting to topple president bashar assad u.s. officials claim only appropriate that members of the moderate syrian opposition will receive american weapons and ammo problem is it's not always easy to differentiate between the moderates and to. arest here's u.s. senator john mccain posing with members of isis the photo is now reportedly being
circulated by the group as proof of their legitimacy not to be disputed the legitimacy of isis is gruesome behavior violence so horrific some report osama bin ladin looks like a gentle soul in comparison as the newest group of terrorists is growing stronger and gaining more ground throughout the arab world their safe haven remains in syria where the white house is promising to send more weapons with the goal of establishing. washington d.c. . and it's not just gulf countries or the u.s. behind the rise of the islamists operating in syria we spoke to dr hussein by the chief from the middle east technical university who says turkey has been supporting jihad is currently fighting president assad. turkish government and particularly in syria is. entertaining strong.
turkish government until now have not moved the a third of these for about the rather speaking about the certain elements of islamic groups we know the government of friendly. groupings on those groups also. has sympathy. of the turkish government. the eyes attack on iraq is further widening existing cultural and religious divides sunni's are fighting shias muslims versus christians tried to against the government and kurds against all i'm caught in the tight by star the minorities who are more threat than ever before as the reports. that he's exhausted terrified with nowhere to go these are rock snoozed refugees in a single day tens of thousands of iraqi christians were forced to flee their homes
after clashes erupted between isis militants and kurdish forces. all of a sudden we heard shelling and explosions we didn't know who was attacking us we just knew we had to get out there wasn't any time to panic most families are going through nothing but the clothes in their backs up food clothes medicines important papers everything we'll have behind i don't know how we'll get by someone donated those blankets and pillows and that's all we have they found safety on the outskirts of the kurdish capital but not much else temperatures through or past a hundred degrees fahrenheit there is power from a generator in a nearby theater but fuel is running out. it's hard to believe that just yesterday this was a completely empty parking lot overnight it's been turned into a makeshift refugee camp. the family has fled in the paddock and entire village emptied overnight the volunteers are doing their best to help however they can but
supplies are limited and more and more people keep coming most came from carrick an ancient christian community on the outskirts of the isis controlled city of mosul it was seen as one of the last safe havens for iraq's do enduring christian population not anymore families like this one or twice displaced were left baghdad at the height of the sectarian civil war lawyer gets up. there. there's no safe place left in iraq in baghdad they used to slaughter you for being a christian now in a suit it's the same thing there is no one to protect us. that was this is the sound of a country torn apart sunni militants are sleeping a prostitute west along informed that an assault shiite militias are digging in the kurds to are on the move reclaiming long disputed territory iraq maybe one plane tree but for how long it actually is sectarian. divide it's
a real it's becoming more violent and that's why you need to separate the communities and have everybody take care of their own. in kirkuk province we need a leader of iraq's minority turkmen community he's taking us to meet the newly formed militia they face extermination from sunni militants he tells me but he doesn't trust the kurds to protect them either. which might get disarmed. and leave them. we arrived to find a deserted village the families have all fled for safety these men stayed behind to defend the land. to go up they used to be drivers teachers farmers and businessmen they took up arms two weeks ago after sunni extremists slaughtered dozens of their people in a nearby village. which no one came to protect us when they attacked not the iraqi
army and not the person. it was a wake up call now we are here to defend ourselves we have enough weapons and we'll fight until the last drop of blood as. determined but outnumbered and outgunned facing an uncertain future in an increasingly fractured iraq. you seek out cuckoo problems iraq. after a short break we return with the news that everything has a price i don't mind where it seems also to be sold in all can be bought including a living president also. in a globalized world where everything comes from everywhere is it possible to live only in the things produced by your own country stay with us as we report in a french journalist attempting to survive only with made in france products.
told him a language of all but i will only react to situations i have read the reports but unlike the pollution from a no i will leave that to the state department to comment on your latter point of the month to save to secure a car is on the job no gonna. say no more weasel words when you fade a direct question are you prepared for a change when you throw a punch be ready for a. printout of speech and down the street into question. dramas the truth be ignored. stories others do a few still noticing. the faces changing the world lights next.
to the picture of today's leaves no longer from around the globe. dropped. to fifty. now it may not be able to buy you happiness but online money can attain you just about everything else even national leaders and as r.t.c. a group has been a fine diet thoughts far from where the peculiar ness and. people can buy and sell or trade almost anything on e bay from britney spears shoot bubblegum to super cars and even someone's life one man in south africa seems to have taken things to the next level placing a lot to auction the country's president the description of the law says jacob zuma has five years' experience as the president is in great health has eight wives and eighteen children the user nicknamed average joe placed
a lot added he wanted to trade president zuma for someone with similar skills just cheaper to run and more clever many south africans have indeed been criticizing the president for becoming a bit too costly for the budget for instance he spent twenty seven million dollars just to restore his country house which was fixed with a new tennis court football pitch helli bad and other high life accessories that's despite many in the country still not being connected to the sewer system while around thirteen million are thought to live on just two dollars a day even though trading humans is a legal this isn't the first time a living person has been put up for grabs on e bay recently a ten year old girl from england tried to sell her own grandmother describing her as annoying what could only the biggest bid reach twenty thousand dollars but was taken down shortly after while one australian man actually sold his own life the lot included his house his motorbike and a car his business and even his friends and archer separated with his partner and decided to start afresh his old life fetched three hundred five thousand u.s.
dollars and now he's reported to live on an island near panama with a new girlfriend so really almost anything can be found on e bay even a partially eaten group cheese sandwich said to bear the image of the virgin mary fetching a biblical twenty eight thousand dollars no wonder presidents are being listed as well. you never know what you could find more stories for you in our t. dot com just like this one about unusual congratulations from israel army forces dropped on brit's all of a lollipop over territory containing messages marking the start of ramadan also. warning a pizza in the sky find out why the russian company launch drone deliveries could be fined for its invention. in an effort to save local jobs and industries politicians often call on people to buy domestic but in this modern
world is it really possible one part of space journalist decided to give it a go surviving only in french made products for ten months. went to find out how they fared. how frank's kind of person really in this day and age the answer is ninety six point nine percent if you ask french journalist question the plot at ten and then for most of us the. rules of this experience were to get rid of everything that was not french and only use products that got most of their added value on french soil with an average salary of one thousand eight hundred euros a month i found myself in a situation where i had to buy everything again including furniture. inspired by government pleads to stick to french products to stop the country's decades long industrial decline the problem is that there aren't many products like that a purely french what really surprised me is how much food we import each time i see a foreign product i think it's crazy because it could have been made in front but
it's not. but benjamin's biggest surprise was that shoppers probably don't know whether french like good little. today's rules of the european union are crazy if you take the shirt for example and you just so the buttons and firms you have the right to put a made in france label on it it's the last operation the product undergoes that matters. even though it's not hard to find economic patriots like benjamin it is hard to support the french although me according to some experts claim the point commitments are opening the door to point competition and force in french companies out of business. estimate that in france there is roughly one plant closing every day between two hundred forty and two hundred sixty plants a year absolute protectionism like in north korea is absolute that what everybody around the world agrees on that when we go from one extreme to another where there's no regulation at all the industrialized nation comes from globalization but
it doesn't happen because some bad guys took the jobs of the french but because the french companies think we will make more money by going. purchase him with patriotism take some afraid but shoppers here are giving it a go and the hope of saving the business is in keeping them in the country retail experts say there's a role just so long as they play fair one solution being put forward a certain level the employment standards within the european union and boost local industries so that it's not cheaper to buy farm products or get them manufactured applause. i love my wife and i love to benefit from things and i think it's impossible to live completely with french products it costs too much anyway and it takes a crazy amount of time because it's hard to find needless to say benjamin is now behind the on his borders again but he's paying more attention to labels and opts for ecological recycle products no matter where they come from moving the cost of our reports in from paris artsy. more stories from around the world more than fifty
people have reportedly been killed in the latest attacks by boko haram in nigeria officials report the islamist militants have been targeting churches in the country's embattled northeast of the us the toxin could raise in four villages where the group kidnapped more than two hundred girls back in the approach. hundreds of people gathered for a rally outside the b.b.c. studios in the scottish city of glasgow the demonstrators accuse the broadcasting corporation of being biased in favor of british unity a protest against the organization is coverage of the upcoming independence referendum. up next a special report on the work of doctors involved in the torture of detainees and if you're watching in the u.k. you're going underground stay with us.
have you ever heard the expression pleasantly surprised well that is how i felt when i heard that the supreme court of the united states had ruled that digital information and cell phones of arrested people cannot be seized without a warrant finally the american people catch a break in a court decision this ruling is linked to the two cases in which the police used information on a suspect telephone to press for further charges against them i think this is the most important aspect of this decision is the precedent it sets the court said that just because a cell phone is in a suspects hand it does not make the information on it any less worthy of protection for which the founding fathers fought so could we extend this to say something like just because i have a telephone or computer that doesn't make the information on them unworthy of protection from the n.s.a. or the privacy invaders the thing is that this supreme court decision is
a good start but the police using your cell phone against you upon arrest is just the tip of the privacy destruction iceberg if the members of the highest court in a land really do feel that the founding fathers fought to protect our privacy then they have a lot of paperwork and court decisions ahead of them for stuart but that's just my opinion. your friend posts a photo from a vacation you can't. call it different. the boss repeats the same old joke of course you like. your ex-girlfriend still pains tear jerking poetry keep tabs nora's. we post only what really matters at r.t. to your facebook you speak. after seven you.
